Requesting Exemption for Ads

The steps for requesting exemption for ads are as follows:

  1. Store all the ignorable policy topics included in PolicyTopicEntry, which is stored inside PolicyFindingDetails, returned when your first attempt to mutate an ad failed.
  2. Send a mutate request to create or update the ad again by including the stored ignorable policy topics.

In this guide, we create a responsive search ad as an example, but the steps for requesting exemption is the same for all ad types and similar for all mutates (create and update).

Store all ignorable policy topics

The error details for ads will be included in PolicyFindingDetails, which in turn stores a list of PolicyTopicEntry objects.

In this step, you need to store the topic field of each PolicyTopicEntry:

Java

private List<String> fetchIgnorablePolicyTopics(GoogleAdsException gae) {
  System.out.println("Google Ads failure details:");

  // Creates a list to store the result.
  List<String> ignorableTopics = new ArrayList<>();

  // Searches all errors for ignorable policy topics.
  for (GoogleAdsError error : gae.getGoogleAdsFailure().getErrorsList()) {
    // Supports sending exemption request for the policy finding error only.
    if (error.getErrorCode().getErrorCodeCase() != ErrorCodeCase.POLICY_FINDING_ERROR) {
      throw gae;
    }

    // Shows some information about the error encountered.
    System.out.printf("\t%s: %s%n", error.getErrorCode().getErrorCodeCase(), error.getMessage());

    // Checks policy finding details for ignorable policy topics.
    if (error.getDetails() != null) {
      PolicyFindingDetails policyFindingDetails = error.getDetails().getPolicyFindingDetails();
      if (policyFindingDetails != null) {
        System.out.println("\tPolicy finding details:");
        // Shows all the policy topics for the current error.
        for (PolicyTopicEntry policyTopicEntry :
            policyFindingDetails.getPolicyTopicEntriesList()) {
          // Adds this topic to the result.
          ignorableTopics.add(policyTopicEntry.getTopic());
          System.out.printf("\t\tPolicy topic name: '%s'%n", policyTopicEntry.getTopic());
          System.out.printf("\t\tPolicy topic entry type: '%s'%n", policyTopicEntry.getType());
          // For the sake of brevity, we exclude printing "policy topic evidences" and
          // "policy topic constraints" here. You can fetch those data by calling:
          // - policyTopicEntry.getEvidences()
          // - policyTopicEntry.getConstraints()
        }
      }
    }
  }
  return ignorableTopics;
}
      

C#

private static string[] FetchIgnorablePolicyTopics(GoogleAdsException ex)
{
    List<string> ignorablePolicyTopics = new List<string>(); ;

    Console.WriteLine("Google Ads failure details:");
    foreach (GoogleAdsError error in ex.Failure.Errors)
    {
        if (error.ErrorCode.ErrorCodeCase != ErrorCode.ErrorCodeOneofCase.PolicyFindingError)
        {
            throw ex;
        }
        if (error.Details != null && error.Details.PolicyFindingDetails != null)
        {
            PolicyFindingDetails details = error.Details.PolicyFindingDetails;
            Console.WriteLine($"- Policy finding details:");

            foreach (PolicyTopicEntry entry in details.PolicyTopicEntries)
            {
                ignorablePolicyTopics.Add(entry.Topic);
                Console.WriteLine($"  - Policy topic name: '{entry.Topic}'");
                Console.WriteLine($"  - Policy topic entry type: '{entry.Type}'");
                // For the sake of brevity, we exclude printing "policy topic evidences"
                // and "policy topic constraints" here. You can fetch those data by

Send another mutate request by including ignorable policy topics

  1. Create an object of PolicyValidationParameter.
  2. Set stored ignorable policy topics to the ignorable_policy_topics field of the created PolicyValidationParameter.
  3. Set the created PolicyValidationParameter to the policy_validation_parameter field of an AdGroupAdOperation in the case of a creation or an AdOperation in the case of an update.
  4. Send a mutate request with the created operation using AdGroupAdService.MutateAdGroupAds in the case of a creation or AdService.MutateAds in the case of an update.
